How can I move on after my dad's death?

My dad died a couple of months ago and everyone keeps saying "I know how you feel." But they don't.

My aunt died last night and I've been crying so hard since then. She was my favourite aunt, she took care of me when my mom died and she's the one I used to talk to about things I couldn't talk to my dad about. how can I get over this and stop it from taking over my life?

 

Hey girlie, I know losing someone close to you isn't easy. It's okay to be upset and cry right now since it's so recent. But you're also going to have to pick yourself back up as time goes because your aunt would want you to. It won't ever be easy, but it will get easier. Keep your aunt's memory with you and make her proud of you.

im so sorry for your loss! i lost my dad just last summer. and the truth? you never really do move on from it. i think about my dad everyday. some things tht did help me cope were writing letters to my dad everyday. going to visit his grave as much as i can. especially on his bday, christmas, easter, and other holidays. also just talking with your friends and family. my friends bday party was on fathers day and of course i went. and it was the first fathers day since his death. i had a good cry with them near me and they just sat there the whole time and did anything to make me smile. but the most important ou never really get is to remember all your good memories with him. you never really get over a death of someone close. you just learn to cope wth your feelings.

1st: to girl who lost her dad, I'm sorry that you did. I lost my grandpa 2 years ago and it still makes me and my family cry.
2nd: MOD MOD MOD MOD: My problem deals with my grandpa's death. See, after he died, things just went down hill. My step-grandma took almost everything from my dad and his two sisters that were left to them in my grandpa's will. And it's only gotten worse. They argue with my step-grandma and my dad cries alot. I haven't seen my step-grandma in the 2 years that my grandpa has been gone. I cry and feel angry at times. And all this is costing us money and lawyers and everything is really hard. My dad and his two sisters are from my grandpa's first marriage, and they're being treated unfairly, especially my dad since he still works with the farm. But my aunt and uncle that are from my step-grandma are being treated like angels, with a new house for my aunt and money. It's hard and I dont' know how to feel sometimes. Help?




Hey girlie,

You can't change the family drama and the financial problems that are going on right now - they're issues that are simply bigger than you and, since they're not your fault, try not to get involved. With that said, they're obviously going to take a toll on you, your dad, your aunts, etc. The most important thing is to support each other and find ways to smile, even through all this nonsense. Try to plan hangout time with the family (even just your dad, if you can't round everyone up) to watch a movie, cook dinner, play a board game, or relax with some snacks to watch TV. Some family time spent together will help everyone unwind, smile, and remind them that they have loved ones to depend on. That's the best thing to remember right now! <3

MOD!MOD!MOD! My dad left us a little over 5 years ago for some one younger and prettier. The divorce was never official, but it really hurt. The problem was, this girl had no idea that he was still connected to my mom. He would talk to my mom and tell his gf all the things we were up to, like he had just talked to us. But now, she left him. And now he's moved back in. I'm uncomfortable with him here and I feel like he's going to hurt us all again. The rest of my family is super pumped though. I don't want to hurt my mom now that she's happy again, but I'm not even comfortable in my own house! I feel like running away...........What should i do?

 

 

Hey chica! It's totally understandable how you feel. One of my closest friends is going through something very similar, and she feels the exact same way you do. I would definately, definately have a talk with your parents, separately, and let them know how you feel. Maybe, you can suggest going into counseling as a family. It sounds like that may be a good option. Don't run away though... that would just turn out bad for you... trust  me. The world is a dangerous place, with lots of dangerous people.

I'm supposed to be Christian, and I'm getting baptised this Sunday (I'm 12, a little late, I know). Except, I don't really want to. I don't actually believe in God- I'm Atheist. I'm not just questioning, I've already made my decision. I don't know quite how to say it to my mom, though. I'm worried that she'll get mad or frustrated with me, or just blow me off and say something like "Everyone has their doubts as some point." I'm not going to explain why I'm Atheist- I just need help!

My cat died yesterday and I can't stop crying. She was so close to me. I feel like a part of me has died too. Are there any tips to help me feel better? Anytime I remember her I start crying, even if it's the good times we shared.
Please help, I hate crying so much. ):




Hey! I'm really sorry for your loss. Losing a pet is so hard. It'll hurt for a while, but the good memories will make you happy again soon. you just need time. good luck!

I can only imagine how tough things are for you. Because we wish you only the best, it’ s

extremely important that you speak to a trusted adult, such as a family member, doctor,




guidance counselor, teacher, etc. ♥, Your Blog Patrol Babes

MOD!! MOD!! MOD!!
first I wanna say I'm really sorry, anyway my ex-bf's (we are friends now the past is the past) dad died and when his friend told me I was mad because I was dealing with some issues and I said "BOO HOO?!?! Who really cares?" After that I felt really mean. And then somebody told him I said that when I didn't mean it! He's been very sad, how can I prove I didn't mean it and that im sorry???




Hey girlie -- you need to go to him and personally apologize and explain why you responded the way you did.

Hey im really sorry about your dad. I know everyone says this but i really can relate because my dad committed suicide in december. I know it's really hard but group counceling helped me a lot. Maybe it can help you move on and realize your not alone. I hope this helps and I'm praying for you.

The title for this is inaccurate. She doesn’t want to move on; she wants to know how to deal with people who expect her to move on.

I don't believe in god or any of that stuff but let me say this I'm not a totally disbeliever i do think that something is out there for better or for worse and your dad seemed like a good man so be happy that you had something that not everyone does I'm sorry that I'm not much of a help

by beko on 3/30/2011 10:08:09 PM

 
 

Hey girl, I'm really sorry. I don't know how it feels to lose a parent but i lost my godfather (my uncle)and my brother who i was really close to and it's been 4 years for my uncle and 10 years for my bro and it still really hurts. But here's my advice,don't forget him but don't dwell on it all the time and try to do things that really make you happy and ask your friends not to bring it up.....I know it's hard but it does get easier over time.(: I Hope you feel better,I know it's hard

Best wishes to you and your family, tho. And also remember that it's okay to cry.

by Blueeyes67 on 3/30/2011 8:33:47 PM

 
 

You won't EVER get over a parents death. My dad committed suicide over 12 years ago. I can't remember him at all, but sometimes I wake up and I think that it couldn't have happened to me. I know my situation is different than yours, but there isn't any use in trying to get over your dad, even if you never really knew him. Think of good times with yours. Appreciate the time you got with him,

by Blueeyes67 on 3/30/2011 8:06:34 PM

 
 

hey girl, i've never really experienced the loss of my parents, but when my grandaddy died i didn't cry. I knew how selfish it would be to cry over him and want him to suffer in the horrible place, Earth. Just know that he now has eteral with the greatest thinng ever, your creator. He now is in a perfect world and you will see him again one day. This is what i beleive please don't get offended.

hey girl, im sooo sorry. I was reading a biography, someone said that "loosing your dad isn't ever something that you get over, more something that you learn to live with, it becomes a part of you"

by rach<3kampkohut on 3/30/2011 6:16:50 PM

 
 

Hey girl I know how you feel! My dad died a year and a half ago and I had a hard time too. What I did to help move on, not forget about him, was talk to your school counselor or some close friends. Your friends should be there for you and will listen, as will your school counselor. Hang in the girl! It gets better with time!

by irish514 on 3/30/2011 5:54:34 PM

 
 

I lost my dad when i was 5 and now i am almost 16.It is hard i know how you feel. I would tell them that you are going to feel this way for some time and that you wish they would support you a little more. Hope the advice will help.

I went and go through that constantly, My dad died too and I'll always miss him! the best thing to do is accept that he died, it's alright to miss him but don't constantly dwell on it because I guarantee it will make you feel horrible keep instead in mind all that you do have that other people around the world don't. and it's ok to cry about it!
